First: Are you going to a specialist or just your family doctor? Second: Have you thought about "depression"? I myself am having a weight problem and have hypothyroidism. When you mentioned that you still have some of the same symptoms as before treatment youi may aqlso have a problem with depression because the symptoms are the same as for hypothyroidism. You did not mention whether or not you took any vitamin or mineral supplements or natural diuretics. I would also suggest that you have yourself tested for diabetes, since the thyroid affects all major organs. I myself have other medical problems and physical limitations in addition to my hypothroidism so I am recommending that you talk to your doctor about other conditions to rule out any other conditions compounding your thyroid problem. Best of luck to you in finding answers.
